The GSA Administrator is required to collect and report agency travel data for Premium Class Travel (formerly known as other than coach class accommodations), Senior Federal Travel and Business and Relocation Travel Reporting Information Profile (also known as TRIP). GSA developed guidelines detailing the authorities to collect data from agencies, which assures compliance. GSA requires agencies to submit their data into the GSA Travel Reporting tool found at https://www.travel.reporting.gov/TRAVEL/TRAVELLogin. To gain access to the data reporting tool, send an email request to email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
The Federal Travel Regulation (FTR), Part 300-70 Agency Reporting Requirements establishes the requirement that Federal agencies report the use of premium class transportation accommodations by their Federal employees while on official travel. The data is reported to GSA annually and due on November 30th each year.
SFTR data is collected to provide data on agencies’ use of Government aircraft by senior executives and non-Federal travelers. The authority to collect this data comes from the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) Circular A-126, “Improving the Management and Use of Government Aircraft” and is implemented through the Federal Travel Regulation (FTR). In addition, other regulations regarding travel on Government aircraft are located at 41 CFR 300-3; 301-10.260/266; 301-70.800/808, and 301-70.900/910. The data is reported to GSA semi-annually and due on April 30th and October 31stth each year.
Title 5 U.S.C. 5707 (c) sets the requirements for GSA to collect data on agencies’ travel spend (domestic and international) and report that data to OMB. This statute is implemented through FTR Part 300-70. The data is reported to GSA annually and due on November 30th each year.
